oil leak

which pipe?

you should be able to see if its the valve cover seal/or 1 of the 8 mounting nuts or the line above #2 cylinder

if its the valve cover or a nut you'll have to reseal it
if its the line, see if the clamp bolt is tight/check the condition of the o-ring

if you are sitting on the bike, it would be the second pipe on the left (and if you are sitting on the bike, you would also be looking at the side of the pipe that is dripping)
